    Well, first of all, why would they leave anything up to chance with those incompetants? Do you not realize how completely out of the realm of experience this attack was for Islamic terrorists? They've never pulled off anything even fucking close to this. Not 1/1000th as successful. Also, there's no way to bring those towers down with fire, or airplanes.
    They didn't need to make the towers fall. True it makes a stronger impact but it was not needed. With the damage sustained, if they stood, they would have been demolished anyways. And any idiot can highjack a plane and hit a target it isn't that hard. It is possible to bring em down with airplanes since that is what happened.

    This sounds crazy, but I don't think we are giving these guys enough credit, they caught us with our pants down. Despite how we like to paint them in contemporary society, Muslims are not incompetent cave dwellers, stuck in the dark ages. Even a quick study of Islamic history will demonstrate this. People like bin Laden have access to enormous amounts of wealth through connections with some of the world's richest people and organizations, as well as the old mujahadeen fighters from the 80s and 90s. As a result, they have access to training, weapons, and sophisticated communication networks that allow them to organize and carry out such attacks.

    But it really wasn't that complex: hijack some planes and crash them. The hijackers easily got through security and took control of some planes and crashed them. And since air travel was extremely lax (you could carry-on blades under 4", as well as screwdrivers and all kinds of other shit that could be used as weapons), they had very little trouble in getting past security. There is nothing incredibly original about this plan; terrorist groups have been wanting to hijack planes to crash into buildings since the advent of air travel.

    If agreeing with the majority means that you're right, then people who voted for George W. Bush in 2004 were right. By your logic, those are votes in favor of waterboarding, Abu Ghraib, CIA prisons, Guantanamo Bay, the Patriot Act, retroactive immunity for telecommunications companies that provide phone logs to the government, politically-motivated prosecution by the DoJ, signing statements, executive privilege, and FEMA's handling of the hurricane aftermath...



    Don't be so happy about majorities. They don't always mean what you think.

    EDIT: I know you're trolling, but I was bored. This is the last time I'll be looking at this thread.

    Actually, I was referring to my comment in the original post where I predicted that there would be an overwhelming majority for NO.

    Good try though.

    This sounds crazy, but you're only speculating that there's any reason this should be believed. Has a plane ever knocked down a building before? Until all of you stop acting like it's so implausible, someone answer me that.

    Unfortunately, I don't trust Clinton, Obama or McCain either. This election really sucks. I thought it couldn't get any worse than Kerry vs Bush but fuck!

    What are you talking about? Do you honstly think that 19 people buying airplane tickets highjacking planes and crashing them into buildings is more crazy than a secret government plot? A plot where they rigged 3 buildings for controlled demo then perfectly timed a fake attack, and then crash planes in to it anyway, remote control a plane into the pentagon, crash one in PA?????

    Because the first scenerio makes much more sense anyway you look at it. I don't see how the controlled demo theory is remotely plausible. So many problems with that idea from a technical standpoint and just logistically. The whole time they were planning no one said "Hey, lets just crash the planes and leave it at that. The buildings will sustain enough so we can demo them if they don't come down on their own."

Just use your fucking head. Unless you're a god fearing good ol' wholesome American that believes everything the government hand feeds you.
    Actually, many truly devout people don't trust the gov't at all. You're right though... just use your head. It's pretty obvious at this point that they AT LEAST knew before hand.

    Good god, I just wasted so much time reading this thread. It's like fucking arguing with my roommate. All these theories are based on anecdotal evidence.
